With two hurricanes heading toward the state-- Iselle expected to hit the big island this afternoon and Julio expected sometime sunday-- i went to my local spot at moloa'a bay and found calm before the storms.

The mini is filled with gas and there's a little over half a tank in the fj. Headlamps are charged and candles are ready. All of our water bottles and glass jars are filled with water and waiting in the fridge. Naomi is baking several loaves of bread today, and we harvested bananas and mangos after taking these pictures this morning. Camping supplies are organized and so is the first aid kit. We're prepared and hoping for the best.

I will close the gallery Friday as Iselle is expected to impact kauai with tropical storm force winds and heavy rains early Friday afternoon. Hopefully Iselle will be nothing more than a gentle breeze and blessing and then we'll get ready for Julio. I plan on opening the gallery Saturday, but may not be able to. It all depends on the conditions, whether or not we have power and the track of Julio.

Throughout the storms my online gallery will be up and accepting orders, and although i may not be able to confirm orders immediately, please rest assured that i will get to them as soon as i can.

To all of the states' visitors-- be safe! To all of my friends and family, Mahalo for your thoughts and prayers. We'll be OK. We'll just have to hunker down with the cats for a few days. 

aloha,
